Style, Substance and Color: Major Trends and Directions

In this complex and information-laden world, there is a multiplicity of resources that inform color and design directions. More than ever before it is urgent to be aware of future trends as consumers are seeking distinctive styling and considerable substance. Most importantly, colors and combinations must be appealing, evocative, transformative and “on-target”. The following themes explain the major trends and the sources of inspiration.

 

Welcome to Day 9: Eccentricities 

There is always room for an eccentric palette with a personality that defies the established “rule book” of design and color, bringing with it a sense of adventure, wit, experimentation and discovery. It’s “tongue in cheek” in attitude and highly original in color juxtapositioning and cleverly conceived in evocative combinations – a flash of neon green radiates off of zesty lemon or nectarine combines with a daredevil Skydiver blue. Fudgesickle brown is rendered sweeter with Strawberry Ice. A warm red coexists with its cooler counterpart, while black and/or white can be drawn into any combination.

**All of us at The Studio thought it would be fun to introduce the nine color palettes that Pantone has offered as new and fresh color combinations for 2014, while highlighting the color combination themes which explain the major trends and the sources of inspiration.

Welcome to Day 8: Tribal Threads 

We are all members of tribes whether through cultural background, religion, political affiliation or community. The colors in this palette are as varied as the tribal diversity they represent, yet they construct a universal linkage of artistic appreciation rooted in personal expression. Color combinations may be disarmingly simple or as complex as inter-woven threads. Neutrals such as Bleached Sand and Kangaroo brown highlight an exotic Arabesque burnt orange, while Goblin Blue is flavored by Curry and Peppercorn. A rose-dusted cedar shade is set off by taupe-toned Incense.

Welcome to Day 7: Moda

Both svelte and voluptuous, Moda speaks of attention to detail and the drama of high fashion when translated into interiors. Combinations can be theatrical in nature, displaying fashionable or whimsical flourishes, but always done with tasteful finesse. Red Dahlia interacts with Blackberry Cordial and Wood Violet all accented by a yellowed Amber Green. Corsican Blue meets with Magenta Haze and an expressive Linden Green, while Rich Gold waits in the wings for the appropriate moment to add a glimmering finale to any of the combinations.
